Hi forum, I recently bought a Lionel 0-8-0 US Army Lionchief set. The sound cut out on it today, and after doing some investigating it looks like some bad wiring on the locomotive drawbar is the culprit. My question is how hard is it to replace the drawbar? I see the part on Lionel's website for around ten dollars is the tether wired into the board or does it just unplug? Also is it possible to fix the oringal tether? Should I just cut the heat-shrink off it and see if I can recconect the bad wire?

Tried it, unfortunately it seems the engine died on the track last night. I think there was a short somewhere that may have fried the board. Lionel seems to sell replacement boards, but I don't feel like getting into that much of a project right now. Thanks for the help everyone though! On the bright side, I have a set of US Army themed cars to go with my 45 missile launcher!
